After obsessing with my Nintendo Switch since March 3rd, playing the amazing Zelda Breath of the Wild, hundreds of hours of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, the clever, “just one more fight” Arms, Switch eshop gems like Snake Pass and Tumbleseed, the kind folks at Nintendo presented me with a review code for a Nintendo 3DS game called Ever Oasis.
And boy am I so happy they did!
Now understand, my 3DS has been a tad dusty, plugged into a charger, looking on in jealously at it’s new big baby brother Switch getting all the love. Don’t get me wrong, the 3DS is still a bit of a charmer for me: I carried it on my journey to E3 gaming Expo this year, still addicted to collecting street passes with my number one obsession being to collect all 366 birthdays (yes I got leap year!) in the uber-obsessive Street Pass birthday game (I am at 349/366 now, after several years playing this).

Exciting news, as Nintendo just announced that it's HUGE tent-pole game, Mario Odyssey, will be playable at this years E3 Convention event June 13-15 in Los Angeles! In addition, Nintendo will also stream live gameplay of this and other new titles for the Nintendo Switch and Nintendo 3DS using their Treehouse Live format.
Splatoon 2 and Arms for Switch will also be showcased in invite only tournaments. Wish they would invite me: I LOVE SPLATOON!
Super Mario Odyssey will be released this holiday season. If Odyssey is anywhere close to the epic scale of Zelda Breath of the Wild, I think Xmas is going to be one of the greatest ever, gaming wise!

The Q line for the E-Ticket ride looks great, with one of the most impressive Audio-Animatronic™ characters you will ever see.
The ride is described as a 3-D Version of Disney's popular attraction, Soarin', though on STEROIDS.
